VIDEO OF THE DAY

Check out videos from today's Baseball press conference. Several Gamecock players including All-Americans Michael Roth and Matt Price elected to return to school rather than sign professional contracts. Seven incoming Gamecocks also elected to come to South Carolina rather than enter professional baseball.

Women's Soccer is ranked #21, extending a streak of 26 consecutive weeks ranked dating back to Sept. 7, 2009. 2010 Conference USA Champions Men's Soccer is ranked #15 entering the season and will face eight opponents either ranked in the Top 25 or receiving votes.

"Here is a photo of me prior to rolling out on a mission.  No matter when we roll, or where we're going.....it's always SPURS UP!!!"
